    That's me.... I hate all animals. I hate them so much I have 4 cats and a Chocolate Lab that I rescued from the animal shelter 2 days before she would have been destroyed.

    I hate cats so much that 2 of mine were rescued as 4 month old kittens that had been deserted and were starving. One of them I hated so much I spent $800 to save her when she got Parvo.

    I hate these animals so much that I don't want the cats eaten by the pack of dogs that run loose in my neighborhood at night, so I keep them in. I hate my dog so much that I don't want her bitten by the dogs off their leash when I'm walking her at the lake.

    Yup, I really hate animals.

    The story you shared is a terrible thing, and I hope th egirl comes through as well as possible, but there's no such thing as a proper reaction with a dog.
    You assume a lot here....
    We have a dog trainer in the family...she usually has 2 of her own that are trained for search and rescue.
    Regular Dogs don't have the kind of intellect you are suggesting, so they don't choose to attack. They have to be trained to attack.
    Untrained dogs do have instinct, and if that instinct is to attack a human, it needs to be put down. Likewise the owners who think it is cool to have a viscious dog around...
    If one of my neighbors had such a dog, I would feed it, once.....after dark.....

    What I'm talking about has nothing at all to do with intellect. It has everything to do with instinct. I don't care how well-trained or even tempered a dog is, if you chain it up, you take away it's ability to flee from a threat. If it is then threatened, it will attack the threat. Every time. Fight or flight is an instinct. A good dog will seek flight first, but if it cannot take flight, it will fight.

    Any dog can become vicious when cornered by a threat. If the kid was throwing rocks at the dog, and it couldn't scape, it won't need to think about it. Instinct will take over. It's the fact that the dog doesn't have intelligence that makes it attack, not the reverse. If it was intelligent, it would recognize that a five year old isn't really a threat, even if it was throwing rocks.

    And even humans have this instinct. Test it some time. Go out and threaten someone with physical violence. You'll see fight or flight in action. Now if the person chooses flight, back them into a corner, thus removing the flight option. Then get prepared to duck.

    There's no thought to it at all. A dumb person will react in basically the same way as a smart one.

    An even better experiment is to take a well-trained dog and back it into a corner an start kicking it in the face. I don't care how well-trained it is, you are going to get bit.

    And what, pray tell, would an example of a liberal animal be?

    If a small dog? One that thinks they should be carried around in handbags with a diamond collar but never having to do any tricks?
